NFC Notes: Cowboys, Panthers, Redskins



Cowboys QB Dak Prescott Prescott talked about being excited to work with the new offensive coaching staff, including OC Kellen Moore and QB coach Jon Kitna, with the hope of building an offense catered more to his strengths.

“It’s just something that when you do it you’ve got to be really convicted about what you’re doing and know exactly,” Prescott said, via David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. “You’re going in there to say, ‘Coach, I want this because it’s great against this look and that look.’  I’m not going to say that’s something that’s new. That’s something I’ve been doing.  I’m just excited about being able to do it more.” 


  • Tony Pauline expects the Carolina Panthers to target a safety in the first two rounds. 


  • John Keim of ESPN says that the Redskins aren’t ready to dismiss any scenario involving QB Alex Smith at this point in time, which means they’re unlikely to release him this offseason. 
  • Cutting Smith in 2020, would result in $32 million of dead money should it become clear that Smith won’t be able to resume his career. 
  • Keim points out that the Redskins can’t afford to sign a high-end free agent quarterback this offseason, but they could consider a mid-level option such as Teddy Bridgewater.
  • Beyond that, Keim says Washington is obviously doing work on quarterback prospects in this year’s draft class. 
  • The Redskins still believe in Colt McCoy being a potential starter for them if need be.
